Restricted use of human studies with pesticides for regulatory purposes .: H113-13/2016-1E-PDF

"This Science Policy Note is to update stakeholders on Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA’s) approach on using data from pesticide studies conducted with human participants, for regulatory purposes. These studies are undertaken by pesticide applicants, registrants and third party laboratories and researchers under very limited circumstances. Examples include, but are not limited to: those addressing systemic health effects, non-systemic health effects (for example, skin irritation), pharmacokinetics, exposure and insect repellent efficacy. Although considered as a type of human study, epidemiology studies and passive biomonitoring studies with pesticides are not the subject of this note as they do not involve intentional exposure"--p. 1.
